Where to go from here as a nation, populated by majority with generations removed, but owing thanks to, ancestry bound to immigrants? Unless you are Native American, you are an American, born from immigrants, who sought a better life for themselves and their families. We are a tapestry, woven from the pains, injustices, and discontent of our forbearers. This is both a painful reality and admission that many of our fellow Americans seem too ready to push from the light of reason and discourse.
